The case for November Municipal Elections

At the Wednesday night City Council meeting, Hoboken resident Phil Cohen spoke on the effort to obtain petitions to the let the people decide when it prefers to hold municipal elections.  Among the reasons he lists is improved voter turnout and participation, consolidation of elections and costs savings well into six figures.  One example he made was the five elections held in 2009.

Mr. Cohen is a long time Hoboken resident and serves as a member of the Hoboken Zoning Board.
